Nickel futures rise on firm spot demand

 
Nickel prices were up 0.96 per cent to Rs 1,343.20 per kg in the futures trade on Friday, as speculators built up fresh positions on rising demand from alloy makers in the spot market.

On the Multi Commodity Exchange, nickel contracts for the June delivery gained Rs 12.80, or 0.96 per cent, to Rs 1,343.20 per kg in a business turnover of 1,819 lots.

A rise in demand in the spot market from alloy makers mainly supported the price rise in nickel futures, analysts said.
